Any place to check FlyingBlue upgrades with miles, besides calling every time??

Hello!

I am familiar with the process of using FlyingBlue miles to upgrade an AF/KL ticket, but I know with North America flights, they specifically block GDS access to viewing O-class. Funny enough, this does not apply to flights that do not touch N. America... and if I use AF/KL to connect, I can typically see the connecting flight's availability, since it doesn't involve cities in N. America!

Unfortunately this means that ExpertFlyer will not assist me on this occasion...

That being said, is anyone familiar with a good reliable way that I can check for upgrade space that may open up on these round-trip North America flights?
Right now, the only way for me to do it is to call FlyingBlue, something I'm sure they will be tired of my repeat calls quite quickly, haha!

Any advice or recommendations are appreciated!
Thank you!

AF/KL website will normally allow you to check it under the booking, it's not always available though.

Where do you see it though? I can never seem to find it, even the one time I called and it was available on a past booking...

On the KLM website, in the "trip details" page it will be next to the change/cancel button (or "About changing your flight" text if booked via TA etc.)

I believe it's labeled something like "Possibilities to upgrade with miles"
